(QCOSTARICA) The completion of ring road of San Jose (Circunvalación) may soon start to become a reality, with the first of the four phases of construction to start in the first two months of 2016.

Due to series of problems mainly due to expropriation and funding, only the Circunvalación Sur (from La Uruca to Goicoechea by way of the south side) was built, the Circunvalación Norte (by way of the north side) remained a project in waiting.

A recent decision by the Comptroller’s office (Contraloría General de la República) authorising the the Consejo Nacional de Vialidad (CONAVI) to divide the project into four phases, will allow work on one or more while resolving the problems of the others.

Thus, the CONAVI is now able to work on the phase between the Rivera creek and the entrance to Leon XIII, towards La Uruca, that will include a 460 metre six lane bridge, while it resolves expropriation issues and other legal problems.

The work has been awarded to the Hernán Solís-La Estrella consortium that has 152 days (five months) to complete the designs and start the work. The work is expected to cost US$147 million dollars.

The work on this phase is contingent on the resettlement of 191 families of the Triángulo de Solidaridad shanty town community, in Calle Blancos de Goicoechea.

The Ministry of Housing and Human Settlements (Ministerio de Vivienda y Asentamientos Humanos  – MIVAH) has informed the CONAVI that it is working on the resettlement, the first four families moved last month and all other families to be moved by September.

A two kilometre overpass will be built over the shantytown.

The other three phases – La Uruca (former Burger King), the Calle Blancos intersection (near the Coca Cola) and, finally, the viaduct between the Colima de Tibás the road to Limón – have no start date.
